Surprising Recipes Blog
Surprising recipes is the english version of gerechtenweb, my original version in dutch. Unfortunately, not everyone speaks dutch, so I decided to create an additional english version some time ago. It is about recipes, and about surprising. I like to experience uncommon combinations. Just recently, I discovered Pinterest, where I am also posting everything in one board, so that you have an easy overview of all the pictures. Hope you can enjoy it, and feedback is always welcome!
